Free Your Energy: A Yoga Retreat
Jeanie Manchester and Billy Goldman
December 6–8, 2013
We apologize, this program has been cancelled.
In this retreat we will refine and deepen our yoga practice by utilizing the breath, steadying the gaze, and aligning the body. Our practice will allow us to listen and become more aware of our superficial mind and habitual patterns. As habitual patterns arise, there is an opportunity to see them for what they are – concepts and ideas. In this process, the energy that was previously deployed in identifying with these ideas is released, resulting in greater freedom and energy. Not only do we experience greater joy, but we begin to respond, rather than react, to our challenges. Through asana, pranayama, meditation and contemplation, we will come to understand better how we can free up the vital life force that is essential for living a vibrant and healthy life.
